Should Dinesh Chandimal replace Tharanga in the 3rd ODI? Mahela as a opener and Chandimal at 4.

Eranga

rest to Kula before the Aus series will be ideal, Tharanga is the only weak link in our team..

yeh the only reason for not

yeh the only reason for not dropping him wud be his stats; the guy has 15 or something ODI centuries to his name. so am guessing they'll keep playing him :D

During the 2nd ODI, one of the commentators (can't recall who) said he was shocked Chandimal was left out because he is one of the top run-makers in ODIs this year. Anyone pick up on that?

yes, heard it as well, it's

yes, heard it as well, it's even more confusing since Jayawardene has already declared that Chandimal is the 'permenant NO.4' in the team!! And now he can't find a place in the team.
Like i stated earlier, Sanga, Tharanga and Thirimanne cannot b in the same XI.(similar batting styles, pace) Only two of them should b in the team, and one of them making way for Chandimal.(those 3 should b rotated while giving Chandimal a permenant spot)
